The Valparaiso University College of Arts and Sciences National Council is composed of women and men who are exceptional leaders in their fields. They provide the dean with expertise, advice, and useful critique about the college’s programs, mission, and direction. The National Council meets twice yearly, and Arts & Sciences students often have opportunities to meet these important alumni and leaders.
